How to pay for your visa?

The Chile immigration service (servicio de migraciones) has implemented a new online platform to apply for a visa.
When you apply for a visa, you pay immediately after finishing to file your application. It can be done online, using the payment systems available in Chile. If you are not yet in Chile, you will be able to pay:

  • by credit card using the WebPay system, which allows international credit card.
  • using PayPal: you can use your PayPal account, or pay by credit card on PayPal.

Please note that when filing a visa for you and your family:

  • children below 18 years old don’t pay anything
  • if you relocate with your partner, you will have to first fill your own application, pay a first time. Then, there will be a checkbox saying “do you want a grouped application?”, which means with your family. If you tick that, you will be asked to fill your partner application, and to repay again for him/her.

Work permit as a tourist

For those wishing to work on a tourist visa, the cost of the tourist work permit is 1.5 times the price of the visa subject to a work contract.

Permanent residency

The cost of permanent residency is 90.242 Chilean pesos. You do not have to pay if your partner (marriage or civil union) is Chilean, or if you are less than 18 years old when you apply.

If you get denied permanent residency but got a new temporary visa, you will be asked to pay the difference between the cost of permanent residency and the cost of your temporary visa depending on your nationality.

Permanent residence can only be obtained after a certain period of time as a temporary resident.

Chilean citizenship

The cost of the Chilean citizenship application is 25.219 Chilean pesos.
